Geoff Shillito

"For the South West Academy Exhibition, I have focused on small, appealing still life paintings, employing my fascination with the intimate, close-up and oblique perspective, a theme often demonstrated in my established figurative works."

Originally a Graphic Designer and Art Director, Geoff Shillito became a dedicated fine artist from the mid 1990s. In 2005 he was elected a member of the Bath Society of Artists.
